1 1/2 cups diced leek
I made this in my Crock-Pot one raw rainy Sunday, and it was pure comfort food. The next day, it even tasted better!
Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup.
Chipotle chile provides the essential smokiness while the sliced ginger offers only a background hint of flavor. Cooked to a golden creaminess, the split peas are enhanced with sautéed, almost carmelized, vegetables and finished with a little miso, which contributes its distinctive richness.
This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day. You can add as much garlic as 2 whole bulbs without it being overpowering–just be careful not to chop the cloves. For a stronger garlic taste, I mash a few of the cloves against the side of the pot as it cooks.
A very hearty stew that, because of the portabella mushrooms, tastes downright meaty.
This is one of our favorite chili recipes, adapted slightly to be fatfree. In my opinion, it makes more than 4 servings– consider them 4 big servings!
Here’s a recipe that’s perfect for both the Fuhrman and McDougall programs. I got it from the Veg-Recipes list, but I’ve adapted it to remove the olive oil that was used to sauté the onion. I also reduced the amount of allspice because I made it as it was listed (1/2 tsp) and it was a little overwhelming. Even with the full amount of allspice, it was very tasty–even my six-year-old liked it, and she claims not to like eggplant.
This chili is incredibly versatile. It freezes forever, it reheats as many times as you dare, you can have it with baked potatoes, in tortillas, under mashed potato.
Easy and excellent!
2 cans pinto beans, canned
1 lb tomatoes — fresh or canned, peeled and chopped, juice reserved…
1 cup lentils
4 cups cold water…
A very simple but satisfying soup–actually more like a stew. Put it in your crockpot in the morning, and come home to a wonderful meal!
3 ribs celery, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium yams or sweet potatoes…
This is what I made for dinner 2 nights ago and it was very yummy!
- Ridiculously Easy Jalapeño PicklesAt the beginning of last fall, the jalapeño plants in my garden went into overdrive, and I found myself with a whole bunch of peppers all at one time. Now, I love jalapeños. I put slices of them, seeds and all, on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and burgers all summer long. I love the heat and […]
- Confetti Bowl with Eclectic Garden PestoWhen Mike and Kelly bought their house 3 summers ago, the only noteworthy feature in the yard was a low growing weeping red Japanese maple. Except for a few unremarkable shrubs, the yard was pretty much empty except for the grass over uneven ground. Since then, they have applied their vision and talents to transforming […]
